This major housing complex is largely unknown outside of Queens, tucked away as it is on the waterfront in Whitestone. Comprising more than 3,000 apartments over 32 buildings, originally there were four apartments per floor on each building meaning that each apartment had a corner terrace. The campus also includes swimming pools, tennis courts, a beach, and other recreation facilities.
